(A cul de sac just over half a mile to Wells High Street)

The house has flexible accommodation with part recently used for Airbnb. On the ground floor it includes a hall, sitting room, dining room and kitchen. On the first floor are 2 double bedrooms and a bathroom. There’s also a third bedroom now converted to a study with a staircase to a 3rd floor. Here is a large double bedroom and a separate cloakroom (basin & wc) – recently used for Airbnb.


Outside is a garage and good parking presently used for a boat and a motor home. At the back of the house is a very pretty garden and an excellent workshop.


Seymour Close is in a popular residential area, well away from busy roads. It’s a good neighbourhood approached off a road which has no through traffic and is itself a cul de sac. No.9 is situated close to the end of the road. There’s a drive entrance to the garage and there’s space as can be seen for a motor home and a boat on a trailer.


The accommodation has the benefit of full double glazing, gas central heating and 14p.v. solar panels. These factors result in the extremely good EPC rating of 83 (B). This is reflected in the running cost of energy and the income from the panels. In 2019 energy costs were £806 and the income was £1,596. (Detailed costings since 2014 are available.)


In addition to the economic benefits No. 9 is a very comfortable home. The front door opens into a wide hall with a large cloaks cupboard and space for a study area. A door leads into the sitting room which has a fireplace with a glass fronted gas fire, two alcoves (with fitted bookshelves and cupboards) and doors into the dining room. This has double french doors to the garden and leads into the kitchen. The kitchen has a sink unit, fitted cupboards, tiled worktops, decorative tiling, an inset freestanding electric cooker, extractor unit and a door to the side driveway.

Upper floors

A staircase from the hall rises to the first floor. The rear bedroom overlooks the garden and has wardrobes with louvered doors and an airing cupboard. The front bedroom also has fitted wardrobes with louvered doors. The bathroom has tiling, hand basin, wc and a corner bath with electric power shower above. Also on this floor is a study with a staircase to the second floor. This includes a double bedroom with sloping ceilings, velux windows and under eaves storage areas. Adjacent is a cloakroom with a basin and wc.


The garage has an up and over door, electricity, hot and cold water taps over a Belfast sink, space and plumbing for the washing machine, a large work bench, the gas boiler and a separate wc. Above the garage is a substantial storage loft with access ladder. There’s also a pedestrian door to the rear garden which is a very pleasant area with privacy, a sunny spot for a table and chairs and for the hottest weather a full width electronically controlled awning with its own wind sensor There is an excellent timber workshop (previously an electronics workshop). This is well insulated and lined, has a tanalised floor and an extensive number of ducted power points.


The present owner has very successfully used the top floor Airbnb. Below is a link to the web page. This accommodation is best summed up by the owner’s description- “I have created a private living space in the attic of my own home to serve as a plain and simple, clean and cosy bed sitting room for those who wish or need to visit Wells for any number of reasons and who may like to work, play, study or relax (as well as just sleep) in peace, privacy and comfort. Ali’s Attic has a light, quiet, airy feel - and a view of the Cathedral over the rooftops.”
